The New Adventure Begins

 (Picture from

 As of May 4th I started joined in an adventures that 1000's of Americans are going through, I became unemployed, you can read about the begin of the adventure here.  I was pretty hard on myself because I didn't feel like doing anything all day long, and wasted a lot of time on the computer.  I was tired and figured it's because my pity party was extending longer then it should.  I got a call Wednesday from my endocrinologist, my blood results were back and she was moving my appointment up three months - my meds need to be adjusted.  I haven't lost much weight but I haven't gained either so I never thought about my tiredness being from my thyroid. That is why I have been feeling so tired.

About four years ago they attempted to kill off my thyroid with a radioactive iodine pill.  The dose was not large enough and it has left me with a partially function thyroid that I supplement with hormone pills.  My thyroid must be slowing down on it's own, I knew that was a chance. 

Fast forward to today, I had an interview and will start my new job on Monday.  This is a newly creative administrative position and the job details are not clearly outlined.  As a matter of fact they haven't decided whether to keep the position as a temporary or permanent.  She wants to see how it goes; I have a good feeling and I'm not worried about it.  The job is located in a historical part of Lincoln and it does not require panty hose - yea!

Just my luck, I got the drive to start eliminating the clutter in my home while I have the extra time off.  Now - no time off, but I'm not complaining.  God blessed me with a two week vacation and now it's time to get moving again.   I will continue to preserver on the de-cluttering, 15 minutes at a time, as the flylady would say. 

Dear Heavenly Father,
I am so thankful for what you have done, what you are doing, and what you will do in my life.  Thank you for the new adventure.  I pray that you take this new adventure and make it yours.  Amen.

Yay for you! I'm so happy to hear that you got the job! At least you got a chance to do a little de-cluttering. Hope you love the job and that it's a permanent one.


Congratulations on the job! And I know that you've already made a good job on the decluttering...15 minutes at a time does make a WORLD of difference! :)
